As I set watching the rain delay and reshape “my” plans I could not help but realize how much I’ll miss my little girl as she moves into the next chapter of her life. This change is not easy for me, and as I set here I wonder how much of this planning, building, organizing and landscaping is the way I deal with the emptiness my heart is feeling. I do not look forward to the days after the wedding when it will be phone calls and brief visits that will replace the Tiercy we now have. Don’t get the wrong idea, I’m very happy for her and her soon to be husband. I know they love each other and are good to each other. I watch them together and know this is what is to be and it will be a wonderful new beginning.
Yes I think I might be hiding behind the busy of the wedding so my heart doesn’t cry yet. I’m learning that joy sometimes hurts as much as sorrow.
The rain will end soon and I’ll be back busy getting ready for this great day in the life of our family. It will be the most wonderful wedding for the most wonderful little girl a “Daddy” could have.
